5 out of 5 eggsGreat sound clear

Pros: clear with low note sound no distortion all the way, no amped ouput signal from sound card.

Cons: power is on volume, wish it was a push button to turn on volume nob, insteat turning down to turn off. Also, there is no stanby sleep on this pair. I knew this they should added though.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for the wife~

Pros: Good looks-Well built speakers
Sound is great-Bass response is good, not over bearing.
Most important-Wife is happy~

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: This is most probably a case of my socket reaching it's limit (Same circuit as washer), but when I hooked these up when the washing machine was running-it put the cirrcuit over the limit and flipped the breaker. Since then, I have redistributed the power needs for the entire system for safety.
I didn't realize I was that close with everything running. Hooked up the kill-a-watt meter and found 2.7W @ .5AMPS

4 out of 5 eggsRotten Egg Returns Policy

Pros: Compact, good looking speakers.Well balanced sound, with ample power and very adequate bass for home computer audio. Extremely nice 'heft' and finish.

Cons: Please accept my apology for deducting one egg, and for this somewhat unrelated gripe, but I feel shoppers should be aware of the Egg's lame returns policy:

NE initially shipped me a damaged set of DOA speakers that looked like someone else's return, then charged me 11 bucks to return and exchange them via the UPS store, which I was forced to drive across town to personally deliver to. The 'Egg 'sale' price ended up being not such a good deal, especially after having to wait an additional week to finally receive a second shipment containing a genuinely new item.

I understand that electronics purchases occasionally arrive DOA or damaged. BUT when Ammazon sells you a defective item, they send UPS to your door to pick up the return for FREE; no questions asked. Guess where I'm buying my electronics from now on... Buyer beware.

4 out of 5 eggs"Collin C." below me - READ THIS!

Pros: Hello "Collin C" who posted his review below mine:

If speakers distort at <50% volume, ==> you're overloading their amplified input. GET IT?
I admit it's an engineer in me who is irritated by the common folks who buy a piece of technology, abuse it and complain "it didn't last", but fact is - can you even read the specs? What does 28Watt RMS power into 2 channels tell you my friend?, it tells me 14 Watt per channel of root-mean-square sinusoidal power in electrical (not audio) terms. Does that sound like a huge audio pressure able to shake your walls?
Anyway, I apologize for sarcasm, but:
You have blown your speakers by overloading their input with an ALREADY AMPLIFIED signal from your source - your mistake, not manufacturer's.
It is equivalent to buying an Intel processor, overclocking/overheatign it repeatedly , during hot humid sessions, maybe knckng on it with a hammer to make sure it runs faster, and then accusing Intel "it didn't last, like server XEON [which $costs multiple times more] does"

P.S. Fact that I don't work for Creative Labs nor trying to promote their product for personal gain, is verifyable by the fact that I had posted numerous reviews (not only Newegg, but the other big eTailers) linked to a variety of products/manufactuer's, I obviously cannot work for 50 so,me companies at once; OK, I just post this review which seems like a kiss for Creative, NOT on their behalf, but on behalf of all engineers who struggle with certain type of a customer. No matter how well one designs a product, there's always a customer - specifically in America, who will find ways to abuse and destroy it.
Someone is sending an ALREADY amplified signal into another amplifier and claims "distortion", wow,
OF COURSE DISTORTION! - you fried speakers, with own action.

Cons: Uneducatd folks annoy me.
Also using this opportunity - not just speakers, but in GENERAL - people, when you review & mark it "negative', do NOT review shipping!
This is not a place to review UPS, FedEx, USPS or whatever else, if shipping was slow go complain elsehwere, here I only care for a PRODUCT review.

Other Thoughts: Some of my thoughts are dangerous.

2 out of 5 eggsWorked for a while

Pros: Pretty good, crisp sound.

Cons: Not able to get very loud without distorting audio, stopped working slightly after the warranty ran out.

Other Thoughts: I wish manufacturers put more time in to making a product that lasts. These speakers had never fallen and were never knocked over, I barely ever took them above 50% volume due to the distortion, and they stop working shortly after the warranty expires. This will be the last set of creative speakers I buy.

4 out of 5 eggsEcxellent for $price, & not best in general

Pros: My 2nd pair (1st original from 3 years ago, left at former job/coworker). For the price, they're a bargain given good performance vs. physical volume.
Physics dictates a minimum volume of cavity to emit audiowaves of certain frequencies, and CreativeT20's are excellent, all if not "too much" is included (cables, Yadapter). Perfect appearance, though to people of my kind appearance is nowhere as important as performance. Detachable grilles are a nice touch for this cheap price, no obnoxious superbright blue LED's seen on products of the past era, good materials for drivers (woven glass, etc.) though see "Cons" section below.
Only few other choices exist for a portable, good audio performance (& good looking!) Ampified Speakers for your work desktop, computer desk, secondary system besides your main "home/monster sized" audio.

Cons: No Cons for an average person, not exposed to high-end stuff; and don't dare to complain for their price - a mircale manufactured with this reasonable audio/sound.
But since I am SPOILED, & my music taste, education/tech background isn't average, an elitist could blast these as junk :) if they forget the price.
First a minor thing - glossy/"piano" surfaces attract basic consumers, yet for us in a professional world they attract dust/fingertips (static cling), rather than attention; also I'd like DCpower cord to be softer, not that rigid cheapo, don't want LED on PSU (powersupply) and I will remove Blue ring LED on speaker but NEVER follow my thoughts as I've been doing electronics since late 1980's (EE) so most people will end up destroying their speakers.
These are miniscule things, normal people ignore.
Now a more serious thing is me having listened to $1000+ speakers which are also VERY compact. I got Prodipe Pro8 ver2 as one example, not sold in USA (why wouldn't Newegg stock them?), only in Europe (Germany/France, had to pay shipping, EUR conversion!), small studio Monitors, and others. They define BANDWIDTH professional, in a specific cutoff rate in dB, these CreativeT20's for 70 bucks I paid obviously won't go there. WHo decided their bandwidth is 50Hz-20KHz I don't know, but I know Heavy Music (Black/DeathDoom Metal, Symphonic Metal, Power/Speed, Classical, underground Rap) as well as fine Trance-Ambient, or Medieval European Pre-Music (earlier than 17th century) is something I surely can feel severe difference between these & more professional speakers.
This might be a waste of a "CON"'s section because - bottom line, these are NOT cons for a cheap speaker.
I say nothing sounds better than these T20's for a little desktop or computer use for under 100 bucks, +good looks. Just annoyed by dust attraction so will wipe glossy panel with antistatic (don't wipe drivers/grille, etc., will damage!!)

Other Thoughts: As I said I am spoiled by real good adio & my music taste is very Heavy + Esoteric. From Dimmu Borgir to Medieval chants, it's not easy to reproduce on cheap speakers.
Not to be unexpected from a EE Engineer.
NO spell check - sorry for typos, busy, typing in darkness

4 out of 5 eggsSoild 2.0 Set-up on Sale

Pros: Sturdy. Easy set-up. Front panel inputs (Power/Bass/Treble/AUX & Headphone) T20 can get fairly loud overall. Price. Seems like decent build quality. Good for above average gaming sound.

Cons: Even after adjusting the bass within my Asus Xonar DS sound card menu, it's simply too much for my tastes when playing music.

Other Thoughts: After I purchased the T20's for $66.99 w/ free shipping from NG, I found the Bose Companion 2 (last years model Series II Silver grill) @ BJ's for $79.99 this week. I must admit, I like the sound better from the Bose myself. More neutral sounding. Cleaner overall. I sent the T20's down to my parents home in Florida & they like them well enough. The T20's (when on sale) are a fine speaker system overall. Sound is subjective, so take my review with a grain of salt.
